Cool Tights of the Season: Brights, Patterns & Animal Print

[ 1 ] October 12, 2010 |

Bright colors, bold patterns and trendy prints are popping up on legs everywhere this season.

It’s a trend that’ll turn any dull outfit extraordinary!

Celebrities such as Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen and Leighton Meester have been spotted rocking this funky look. And, tights were all over the runways for Fall/Winter 2010.

Make the look work for your everyday wardrobe by wearing them with understated clothes that don’t compete with the tights. Take Blake Lively’s outfit (pictured on the left) for example; she chose muted colors that complement the color and print of the tights.

Check out the fun tights below and start getting creative with your wardrobe!

Brightly Colored Tights

Wearing a bright color tight will add a pop to any dark or neutral outfit. It’s a great way to stand out on a dreary rainy or (dare I say it?) snowy day. Try pairing a bright tight with a neutral skirt or little black dress to punch up the volume.

Patterned Tights

Patterned tights add texture and depth to an outfit. If you think you can pull it off, try mixing patterns and textures to create a visually interesting look. If you’d like a more subdued look, then pair a patterned tight with solid neutrals.
